Why the Founder of Victoria’s Secret Threw Himself off a Bridge
The Victoria’s Secret show costs more than $10 million to put on and is hailed as one of the most important fashion shows in the world. What is not so known about the company is the tragic story of its founder, Roy Raymond. Raymond started the company after being influenced by a shopping trip he’d just taken with his wife.
“Our original idea was to have a store where men felt comfortable shopping for lingerie. It all began when Roy went shopping for me, and felt out of place in a lingerie store. Victoria’s Secret tried to change that,” says Gaye, Roy’s wife. Gaye is now a 65-year old professor at Samuel Merritt University.
The couple had five shops by 1982, and then made the horrible mistake of selling the company for $5 million to Leslie Wexner, founder of The Limited.
*Don’t worry about money, but don’t give up on your dreams either. If it’s your dream, see it through.
